Well this isn't exactly how I pictured Endor, but... it works. Parts of this map look very good and others look not so very good, which is a bit odd, but altogether it's a large map that provides a variety of gameplay options that should keep folks busy.
The basic idea of this map is that it is split into three sections -- a normal Endor section, an Endor swoop race section, and a beach hangout section which seemingly has nothing to do with any part of Endor I've ever seen. Although I have to say this map gets an instant 10 for having a copy of Dark Forces 2 in the shelving unit. The general atmosphere of the Endor sections seems a lot brighter than I remember Endor ever being. This is likely 100% or at least in part due to the very bright fog that seems to cover the entire section of the map. If it was a more neutral color it would probably blend a little better.
I also think there are not as many trees as their should be, but I do understand the probably reasons behind having fewer trees and I more than respect it, especially since my FPS was not top notch to begin with, much less with 50 additional trees. The intense dynamic glow during certain portions of the map probably didn't help with that and nearly tempted me to disable the feature... Toning that down may be a good idea.
